No. 253 of 1882.—Petition of Hehiri te Waha and 5 Others.
Petitioners state that they represent the hapu of Ngatiparewahawaha. The petition is very indefinite in its terms, but it seems to complain that they had lost the land called Te Wharerangi.
I am directed to report as follows:—
That similar petitions were before the Committee last session—first, under the name of Nepia Taratoa and others; and, next, of Karaitiana Te Ahu Taikapurua and others. No further evidence has been adduced by the present petitioners; but, as it is said they can produce evidence, the Committee recommends that they be allowed an opportunity of appearing in support of their petition next session.
